Consciousness Raising Through Uterus-Knitting Parties
North Texan Kimberlyn Crowe donned her Standing on the Side of Love shirt for an important interview with her local news about her role in knitting uterus replicas.
Yes, uterus replicas.
Crowe has joined a movement of people across the country who are holding uterus-knitting parties and sending their hand-knit replicas to elected officials.
The message: If we knit you a uterus of your own, will you stay out of ours?
Crowe says she wants lawmakers to laugh, and think. Along with others in her knitting circle, she will send the hand-made gifts to Gov. Rick Perry and other legislators that cast votes to cut funding for women’s healthcare and limit access to birth control. Gov. Perry’s will be delivered in person at a march later this month in Austen.
We are proud that Kimberlyn chose to wear her Standing on the Side of Love shirt as a backdrop to this important consciousness-raising effort!
